    With Cristiano Ronaldo on his way to Juventus, the question is who will replace him at the Santiago Bernabeu?
    Real Madrid accepted a huge bid of £105 million for Ronaldo from Juventus which has seen the Portugal international move to Serie A and the Spanish giant are scanning the horizon, looking for a worthy replacement. Lots of names has popped up they likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and Harry Kane are all on their list of potential Ronaldo replacements but who does the cap fit?

    The Portugal captain decided to move to Italy after Juve agreed to grant him pay parity with Lionel Messi and Neymar. He has played at the Bernabeu since 2009 when he moved from Manchester United for a then record-breaking £80million fee.

    The 33-year-old Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid as the club's all-time leading scorer, with 450 goals in 438 games. He also won the Champions League four times, three FIFA Club World Cups and two La Liga titles, as well as the Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup twice apiece.

    Coming to replace Ronaldo won't be a easy task. Infact, it's suffice to say Madrid may never get someone to replace Ronaldo, but Los Blancos will need find someone to help out in the goals department. The club are now eyeing replacements with Neymar, Mbappe, Hazard and Kane.

    Club president Florentino Perez interest in him is nothing new, with tracking him since his days as a Brazilian prodigy with Santos. He has been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid before losing him to Barcelona in 2013. Neymar scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in his first season in France and provided 16 assists.
    Real see Neymar’s marketability as a key reason for them pursuing his signature. It is said certain members of the club’s fanbase harbour doubts about Neymar due to his ego, but he would easily win them over, once the goals started flying in.

    He is an easy option, he has made no secret of his dreams to play for Madrid, everybody likes Hazard, he is a funny, selfless individual. He might not be a direct replacement for the prolific Ronaldo, having scored 17 goals for the Blues last season, but he is a pre-made package, marketable and a developed player.

    With Chelsea not in champions league football, a move to Madrid might be too enticing for him to resist.

    Mbappe might be the best and perfect replacement for Ronaldo. The 19-year-old is dexterous and scored 33 goals in 48 games last season. He currently lighting up the World Cup.

    He became the first teenager to score a brace in a World Cup game since Pele in 1958. His performances at the World Cup have drawn comparisons with Thierry Henry and Michael Owen.

    Madrid wanted him last year and might give him a shot this season. Signing Mbappe would be just like signing the original Ronaldo and Henry at the same time.

    Harry Kane
    If you need someone to replace Ronaldo in the goals scoring department, Kane has the best chance of matching Ronaldo’s goals haul and would have no problem dominating the Bernabeu. Some Madrid fans would also be critical if all he did was score goals with no added frill. They said the same of Michael Owen: 'All he does is score goals!
    Despite scoring mammoth number of goals season in season out, Kane is yet to win a trophy and a move to Madrid is a almost-guaranteed trophies and money which might be too difficult to resist.

    Antonio Griezmann
    Despite announcing he would stay at Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid can still capitalise on what Barcelona have missed out on and take away Atletico Madrid most prized asset.

    Griezmann, scored 29 goals in 49 appearances for Atletico last season and also provided 15 assists.

    I strongly disagree with you on this, Real Madrid will falter not because Ronaldo left them, but because the whole system changed and the change is drastic, a change in management and a depleted team caused by loss of major players which started with Ronaldo, because other players will move on too.

    On who to replace Ronaldo, no one can replace Ronaldo as @Aloys said, but the inclusion of any of the three potential replacement is enough to spice up the team.

    Yes, Cristiano Ronaldo is the most followed footballer, all United fans who claim to be Real Madrid fans because of Ronaldo are all liars. Some would even want Barcelona to out shine Real Madrid in every realm just to prove a point that a Real Madrid squad without Ronaldo is useless.
